Wigan Athletic could move out of the Premier League drop zone on Saturday with success over Aston Villa at the DW Stadium. Roberto Martinez's Latics begin the day bottom of the table, but they boosted their survival hopes last time out by winning at Bolton. That 2-1 victory at the Reebok Stadium ended a winless run of nine games for Roberto Martinez’s men, stretching back to December 10 when they overcame West Brom by the same scoreline. The Latics’ past three wins have come on the road, with August’s triumph over QPR the only time three points have been picked up at the DW Stadium this term. Aston Villa’s failure to score for the ninth time this term culminated in defeat against Manchester City, their second in a row. Their last two wins have been on the road while Alex McLeish’s men are unbeaten against sides in the bottom five, edging a five-goal thriller at Wolves in their last away success.
• 35% of Wigan's goals have come from shots outside the box, the highest percentage in the top flight.
• 32% of the goals Aston Villa have conceded have come from corners, a higher percentage than any other team.
